News in Brief 85th Congress set for Long session nuclear units to fire Polaris by Elton c. Fay Washington dec. 28 Iff the defense depart ment was reported today to be proposing an almost immediate Start on building the first three nuclear powered submarines specially designed for firing the Navy s Polaris intermediate Range ballistic missile. Funds for procuring material and carrying Forward the design of the boats would be included in the proposed one billion Dollar supplemental military budget for the current fiscal year which ends next june 30. This would represent a Speed up of the original intention to in clude Polaris submarine Money in the next fiscal year s budget. The Navy had said it expected to ask funds in that budget for a Start on one such submarine. Congressional action on future budgets usually is not completed until mid summer. Secretary of defense Mcelroy told newsmen last week he would submit a request for approximately one billion dollars of additional funds for the 1958 fiscal year. He said a Large part of this would go into missile programs. In addition it is expected the supplemented Money Bill will in clude requests for funds to be used in research and development and for expanding the program of dispersing strategic air com Mand bases. All three projects were included in topics singled out by president Eisenhower in his first nationwide address on defense needs last month. Special task Force pacing Hie development of the Polaris missile itself has been a special task Force of ship design ers and armament experts engaged in developing a final design for a Polaris firing submersible. Navy official have said several different submarine designs Are under consideration. Because of requirements for handling the Polaris missile the Interior layout of the new submarines presumably will be changed substantially from that of even the newest design nuclear submarine filled for conventional torpedo fir ing mine laying or guided missile launching. Unlike the surface launched regulus guided missile the Polaris rocket will be fired while the submarine is submerged. This Means that the launching tubes several must be mounted vertically within the Hull. The Polaris is understood to he of somewhat smaller dimensions than the air Force s Thor or the army s Jupiter Irby although of the same mile Range. This would suggest that the Polaris missiles could be mounted vertically within the pressure Hull of a submarine without any great change in the boat s exterior measurements.
